TCU moves up one and Southern California climbs two spots to join Georgia and Michigan in the top four of the USA TODAY Sports NCAA Re-Rank 1-131 heading into the final weekend of the 2022 regular season.
This uncontroversial grouping is followed by No. 5 Ohio State, which drops just three spots after being handed a second ugly loss in a row to the rival Wolverines.
As the only other one-loss team in the Bowl Subdivision, the Buckeyes faced no real challenge for the seat just outside the top four. That sets up the possibility that OSU will be ready to bounce back into this group should USC lose to Utah for the second time this season, this time in the Pac-12 championship game.
